Only if a compositing manager is enabled, from what I understand. If
there's no compositing manager turned on, the server doesn't redirect
drawing and you get normal rendering. So you could simply not run a
compositing manager and be fine.

Since it won't hurt metacity users, if kde people tell us that it
won't be enabled by default in kwin i think we could enable composite
by default in xorg, no?
